Built in collaboration with the Reedy Creek Improvement District and Origis Energy USA, this facility is expected to generate enough power from the sun to operate TWO of the four theme parks in Central Florida annually. It will also significantly reduce net greenhouse gas emissions, joining the numerous efforts The Walt Disney Company has launched to deliver its 2020 goal of reducing emissions by 50% compared to 2012.

Utilizing the power of the sun is hardly a new practice for Disney Parks.Also at Walt Disney World is 22-acre, 5-megawatt solar facility shaped like Mickey Mouse that opened in 2016. and the Cars Land Radiator Springs Racers attraction at Disney California Adventure is also with solar technology.
